Abstract

Date Presented 4/1/2017

We used a mixed-methods design to demonstrate the benefit of a group yoga intervention for persons with chronic traumatic brain injury (TBI). Aligned with the holistic principle of occupational therapy, a yoga-based intervention combining mind and body in practice might be an ideal alternative for clients with chronic TBI.
